Chick-fil-a hypocrisy

In this article at CNN religious extremist Albert Mohler demonstrates that bigots like himself can dish it out religious intolerance, but they can't take it when people respond to them in kind.  He and his ilk of religious fanatics have tried to use religion as a weapon, starting/endorsing campaigns to boycott and financially ruin businesses that say "Season's Greetings" or "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas", for example.  Now that consumers are doing similar things to Chick-fil-a, they scream "religious discrimination".  

All these religious people would happily discriminate against other religions, be it Muslims who they forbid from building mosques on private property, or atheists, who they would run out of town on a rail in any city in the Bible Belt.  These are the people leading the charge to deny government benefits to gay couples, and they and their followers would do everything in their power to make sure that an openly gay business owner was shut down or worse.  They certainly see no problem in refusing to provide all kinds of services to gay individuals on "moral grounds".  So why can't the rest of us say, "I will do everything I can to shut down Chick-fil-a on MORAL grounds".

These people are constantly attacking the religious freedoms of others and therefore have forfeit any right to complain when similiar tactics come back to bite them.  It's Karma, and yeah, that's another religious concept that they hate, because it's not theirs.

BTW, people like Mike Huckabee want all the religious fanatics to go eat at Chick-fil-a next week.  Maybe it's not such a good idea for them to all be in one place where people have such easy access to them. It would be a shame if all those restaurants accidentally burned down with Huckabee and his lame-brained followers inside them.
